M.V.D. – Most Valuable Diva – Week of September 29, 2013: Brie Bella

MVDOWW Women’s Wrestling Columnist Eric Holt chooses his M.V.D.- Most Valuable Diva(s) of the week, based on television matches, promos, and/ or segments.

For the second week in a row, Brie Bella is the Most Valuable Diva of the week.

Brie had a drama-filled, action-packed week, which began on Monday Night Raw. To start off with, it was announced that Brie Bella would be facing AJ for the Divas Championship at Battleground. Brie has the opportunity to become a two-time Divas Champion if she can beat AJ at Battleground. Brie and twin sister Nikki once again had a backstage segment with Randy Orton. Randy Orton’s words left Brie feeling intimidated by The Apex Predator. I would have loved to have seen Brie slap Randy, but I think Brie’s going to be saving that for another time. Despite being left intimidated by Randy Orton, Brie did not let that stop her from competing in her match against Alicia Fox. Both girls put on a great match that was given plenty of time. Brie continued to show off her recent improvements in the ring during the match, and she ultimately won after hitting Alicia with the Bella Buster. Although Brie is this week’s MVD, I wanted to also take a moment and compliment Alicia Fox on how great she did in the match as well. Alicia put her legs to great use during the match, and she had amazing chemistry in the ring with Brie. It makes me wonder why WWE doesn’t use Alicia Fox more often. In my opinion, she is one of the most underrated divas on the roster today. Anyways, let’s get back to talking about Brie. Brie took part in the last segment of RAW, where she looked on as her boyfriend Daniel Bryan took a nasty beating from Randy Orton, including an RKO on the announce table. Brie played the part of a distressed girlfriend to perfection. Everything about her part of the segment was great, from her facial expressions to her acting. Brie had a standout performance on RAW.

M.V.D. – Most Valuable Diva of the Week: Brie Bella

MVDOWW Women’s Wrestling Columnist Eric Holt chooses his M.V.D.- Most Valuable Diva(s) of the week, based on television matches, promos, and/ or segments.

Brie Bella has been on a roll these past couple of months with how impressive she has been in the ring and with her character. This week on Monday Night RAW, Brie continued her shine when she picked up a win over Divas Champion AJ in a ten diva tag team match. Despite the shortness of the match, Brie was impressive during the time she got to compete, and in my opinion, she was the standout competitor in the match. Although it seemed as though WWE was leaning more towards Natalya challenging AJ for the Divas Championship, Brie’s victory over AJ may now cause a change in plans. Brie also was part of a backstage segment with her twin sister Nikki and boyfriend Daniel Bryan’s current rival Randy Orton. During the segment, Randy insulted Daniel Bryan and told Brie she needs a “real man” aka Randy Orton. Brie stood up for her man, calling him a real man and champion, showing that she was not going to back down from Randy or be intimidated by him. That segment was absolute GOLD in my eyes. Brie brought a lot of personality and character to this segment, and I loved how she stood up for herself and Daniel Bryan against Randy Orton. She looked and sounded like a strong woman.  With Brie’s noticeable improvements, her clean win over Divas Champion AJ, and her real-life relationship with Daniel Bryan coming into play, the possibilities for Brie are endless. Will we see her challenge AJ for the Divas Championship? Will she play a role in the Daniel Bryan/Randy Orton/WWE Corporation feud? Either way, Brie is bound to receive a push in the near future.

Come back next week to see who will be the Most Valuable Diva of the week.
